The aroma was divine when this came out to the table.
On my first visit, I ordered a dry-noodle curried chicken dish. Take-away experiences elsewhere led me to anticipate that the sauce would be quite ordinary and I was also prepared for the dish to come without any vegetables.
Wasn't brave enough for that last mouthful.
The dish that was brought out to my table was instead significantly impressive; a large, steaming bowl, thick with chicken and vibrant greens. I had asked for some heat and slices of fresh, hot chilli had been tossed through. The fresh egg noodles were a textural delight; firm, thick and a real complement to the sauce. The pieces of chicken were tender and, neither time having this dish (I came back for it!), did I have any issues with gristle or bone. The sauce was complex, far more so than it looked, with rich flavours of soy, cinnamon and pepper.
These guys have an excellent range of traditional and more inventive drinks on offer.
Though these look like they've just been tipped out of the pan, it was a real benefit to have them piping hot.
I also ordered some pan-fried pork and chives dumplings. These were tasty, with crispy bases and a generous amount of filling in each. Altogether satisfying. After my big bowl of noodles, I was also very appreciative of being able to take half of these dumplings home in a container with me for lunch the next day. I do believe that they were a little doughier than they perhaps should have been. A bit more thought could also have been given to their presentation, as they were brought to the table a bit untidy on the plate. When prices are good, taste is what matters but a little more care here would really elevate this place.
Meaty with lots of spring onions: big tick! Exterior was a little thick.
Thirty cents and you get a fashionable container like this to tote around.
Service here is attentive, kind and efficient, leaving you to your own thoughts without making you feel unwanted. The dishes here are unapologetically authentic and will not disappoint.
